This is not the first time a former president has been convicted in Argentina, but there are also significant differences with previous cases.
Cristina de Kirchner announced that she will never again be a candidate for anything. But beyond the real meaning of this resignation, the sentence opens an uncertain political panorama in Argentina.
Cristina tries to convince Argentines that Kirchnerism and Lulism are similar, but her efforts to polarize society reveal many more similarities with Bolsonarism.
The mega-case targeting Kirchnerism has already been going on for six years and is coming to an end. Beyond the condemnations that may arise from this verdict, it will cause a major political impact on the country.
